Ashcroft Farmhouse is an excellent friendly and professionally run Bed and Breakfast guest house in East Calder - a village just 10 miles west of Edinburgh City Centre.
It is a modern house which has been specially designed and built so that all the guest rooms, including the six en-suite bedrooms are on one level. The rooms are quiet and light and tastefully decorated, and each is named after one of Scotland's championship golf courses.
Derek has won an award for the lovely landscaped garden which is much enjoyed and appreciated by visitors to Ashcroft.
